So many of our most clever inventions have been anticipated by Nature, often by millions of years. Through humour, anecdote and science, the author allows us to share in his enthusiasm as he takes us on a journey through the natural world. Subjects covered include the way in which the sizes and shapes of animals and machines have been largely dictated by the size and weight of the Earth and by the properties of materials. This book should appeal to scientists and non-scientists alike.
' ... a very personal book, unclassifiable, unscholarly, but unfailingly interesting.' Times Higher Education Supplement
